Morning Brew: March 14th, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Wednesday March 14th, 2007:

The 2006 Census results were revealed yesterday. Milton grew by 71%, Brampton 33%, Vaughan 31%, and Barrie by 19%. Toronto's population grew by just 0.9% over the same period, and you're one of 31,612,897 in Canada.

The high-profile trial of former media mogul Conrad Black is set to begin in Chicago today. The wiki for Conrad Black provides a decent summary of how he ended up where he now is.

Ontario lotteries are facing more scrutiny related to fraudulent winnings by vendors, and slot machines in the province also continue to be investigated on allegations they display subliminal messages. Dishonesty is making lots of people rich.

New laws that will crack down on street racing are expected before the summer arrives. No more fun fun fun on the makeshift Autobaun (and hopefully no more accidents and deaths).
